Well, as soon as the tweet went out, a plethora of responses followed not only ripping the Hurricanes for claiming ‘Hockey Town’ after being in existence for just over 20 years but reminding them that there is only one city that can claim that title.
Even the Detroit Red Wings Twitter responded to the Hurricanes tweet.

Oh, by the way, Carolina…
It’s ‘Hockeytown,’ not ‘Hockey Town!’
